When creating this piece I couldn't help but think about how this image was comparative to life in general. I mean we all experience life in a different way, circumstances are different, goals can change, what makes one person happy may not make another happy to the same degree or at all for that matter, but we are all on a journey. Our own path or set of tracks if you will.

Looking down these tracks you may see caution tape, warning signs, garbage and that small bridge could be appreciated or despised, depending on where we are in our lives.

For me this is a reminder that there doesn't have to be a major shift or change in life to start a new journey. The journey is always there waiting for you. It's a reminder that I don't have to heed caution tape and warning signs, just because they exist. The age old saying, "No Risk, No Reward" comes to mind. And finally it's a reminder that everything in life has a beginning, middle and end. Everything!

What I love most about photography is that is a highly subjective art. Each person may view this image in a different way completely. I'm fascinated about the complexity of the human mind and how so many people see many different things in a single image or feel a different emotion based on composition, color and mood of a single image.

So today I ask you to look at this image and before you read the interesting things others may write, write about what you feel, write what you see in this image when thought of in comparison to your life. I would love to read your perspective, your thoughts and your comments!
